INTRA NOBIS REX INFERNORUM?
CHRIST’S HARROWING OF HELL
Too often, Jesus is underestimated as shaman, healer and magician. But, it is what it is. My intention is not to be blasphemous or heretic but to give a more modern, scientific and less fanatical vision of the Cornerstone of Our Western Civilization using comparative mythology. Mí¢r Yeheshouah, the magician like Morton Smith once wrote. Undeniable and unquestionable the Anointed One, was also a psychopomp or guide of the souls. Accordingly to the Scriptures, after His death, Jesus went to the land of the deads, to the infernals regions, into the summerlands. In the elysian fields, in the limbo of the Amenti, for three days, until His resurrection. That’s a VERY controversial moment. It is said Christ went to the tartarus regions to redeem the souls of the righteous ones, releasing them from the chains of death, starting with Adam and Eve. Christ’s torture ground name was Golgotha, hill of the skull. Accordingly to some writings, Adam was buried there waiting for redemption. So, the Saviour released the good ones, He cleaned the genealogical tree of mankind. Like Orpheus or Gilgamesh or any shaman He visited the Underworld and not only came back but also set souls free. Majestic, isn’t it? But the best part is that, from St. Matthew:
“50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many”.
Many thus would say He was then a kind of King of the Undeads and it could be really true.
Also, among other things, Christians were accused to be black magicians doing necromantic practices…
